一个更环保,更健康的城市

  1. 更多的树木增加了绿荫,绿化和美丽。这意味着到2030年在温哥华市再种植20万棵树,这将降低环境温度,有助于清洁空气,减少噪音污染。
  2. 公共加水站数量翻倍。这意味着减少塑料瓶的使用和增加环境保护,公园,广场和城市公共场所将会设有可重复使用的水瓶。狗的供水设施数量也将增加一倍。
  3. 促进当地农产品和园艺的种植。这意味着寻求新的合作伙伴关系,为城市拥有的土地和设施提供额外的园艺和教学机会。
  4. 为农贸市场提供更多机会。城市周围的新许可机会将提供更多的新鲜农产品,并有助于支持当地农业和工匠。

长期可持续性的政策框架

支持最环保的城市行动计划。我们的目标是到2020年使温哥华成为世界上最环保的城市,同时也认识到该计划是一份灵活的文件,必须对新的想法和机会持开放态度,并具有足够的灵活性来应对新出现的挑战。

支持减碳。这包括与温哥华港和YVR机场等主要区域排放与合作,探索减排战略。

气候变化适应战略。我们的气候正在发生变化,温哥华市需要做好准备,以适应和减轻对居民的影响。这意味着经常更新战略以考虑新数据和预测的影响时间表。这也意味着确保纽约市通过额外的道路清理和除雪来应对恶劣天气条件的运营准备。

迈向更清洁的海滩和海岸线。制定行动计划,加快下水道分离,保护海岸线,确保温哥华人可以在海洋中游泳。

增加收费地点。这意味着通过与私营部门合作,在4年内使电动汽车充电基础设施翻两番,从而鼓励采用电动汽车。

个家庭友好的温哥华

我们计划提供更实惠,许可和安全的托儿所。

NPA儿童保育计划 – 温哥华家庭友好计划 – 将为利益相关者创造激励,免除费用,并将利用来自B.C.的资金。省儿童保育计划。 NPA计划提供解决方案,以加快不同级别的政府和监管机构之间的许可和快速许可要求。

使新的儿童保育空间更快,更容易,建造成本更低的三项措施。

专门建造的儿童保育空间为当地社区提供了宝贵而迫切需要的便利设施。 NPA将消除建立儿童保育设施的障碍,并承认他们提供的公共利益。

  1. 免收昂贵的费用。首先,取消纽约市批准“空域包裹”的42,600美元费用。
  2. 提供奖励。允许那些有兴趣建立托儿所的人有资格获得目前仅供租赁项目提供的奖励(租赁100)。
  3. 将儿童保育纳入Fastlane。这意味着加快许可证和快速跟踪项目,特别是对于非营利性幼儿中心。这降低了成本并使空间更快速地可用。

我们的长期战略

填补空白。在服务区域优先考虑城市发展和伙伴关系,以确保温哥华所有22个社区都有适当的托儿中心。

将儿童保育作为常态。这意味着以城市为主导的开发项目或出租房屋或其他以城市土地为基础的项目,包括儿童保育设施。

促进单一窗口。与温哥华沿海卫生局和卑诗省发展合作伙伴关系,纽约市提供前线服务,以简化许可证和许可证,并协助获得其他各级政府的资金。

促进可访问性和连接性。通过在老年人中心附近找到儿童保育设施来鼓励代际联系。为了使设施更容易获得,将鼓励在交通附近安置托儿所。

我们对老年人的承诺

我们计划确保温哥华不断增长的老年人口安全,活跃并融入我们城市的社会结构。

随着人口的增长,老龄化和活跃,温哥华可以成为老年人生活质量的国家和全球领导者 – 这正是我们想要实现的目标。

Ken Sim和NPA团队将:

 

支持每个人都有权使用自己的社区的概念

  • 通过建立‘’流离失所的租户政策,保护老年人免受“拆迁”和强制翻修。如果发生拆迁,固定收入的人,包括许多老年人,尤其处于危险之中。这意味着与租房倡导者和开发商合作,为开发商或新建筑取代现有租户的开发商建立明确,一致的义务(注:流离失所的租户政策首先在我们的住房计划中公布)
  • 让老年人随着年龄的增长选择留在他们的社区,无论他们选择留在家里,还是搬到附近的住所。这意味着与省政府合作,非营利性;和私营部门合作伙伴确保在邻里一级提供适当的住房。
  • 由非营利机构或与BC Housing合作开发的快速通道住房将使低收入的温哥华人,弱势老年人和/或残疾人受益(注:(注:快速跟踪某些住房开发项目是首次公布)在我们的住房计划中)

在我们的设施和建筑环境中解决安全和可达性问题

  • 作为综合运输和机动性审查的一部分,确保人行道和路灯满足老年人和行动不便,风险下降的其他人的需求
  • 考虑老年人在制定所有住房政策,社区中心和其他市政设施和基础设施方面的独特需求。这包括楼梯/坡道,门,浴室等。
  • 确保温哥华的无家可归者收容所满足弱势老年人的需求,并根据需要为他们提供过渡性住房机会

确保为老年人中心提供适当的空间和资金

  • 支持建立新的老年人中心 – 例如最近完工的基拉尼老年人中心,并在必要时升级现有设施,如南格兰维尔老年人中心
  • 在城市拥有的土地上建造新的出租房屋时,寻找每个机会为老年人的活动创造空间
    (注:在城市土地上建造专用租赁单位是我们住房计划的核心组成部分)
  • 确保社区中心与老年人计划和独立老年人中心拥有创建和促进社会互动机会所需的资源,因为社会隔离是我们老年人群的主要关注点之一

Dear Vancouver,

How much is enough?

Because every night when I go home, I see more people sleeping on the streets. I see more needles in our parks. I see the degradation of our public spaces, as they become unwelcome to our citizens. I listen to people whose housing goals keep slipping farther and farther away. I listen to my kids and their friends who say they can’t see a future here.

It’s hard.

And I ask you – how much is enough… until we will decide to try something else?

For ten years, Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver have been in charge of our City.  And while they have made progress on some issues, such as making our City more environmentally friendly, it is clear to me that on the big issues that matter – housing, homelessness, our core services – they have largely failed.

In ten years, our city has seen a marked decline.  Things have gotten worse.

So why in the world would we keep going down this failed path?

We need change, and we need it now.

My opponent, Kennedy Stewart, claims to be an “Independent” candidate, but he is in fact the Vision candidate in all but name.

His housing plan is identical to Vision Vancouver’s failed policy.  Here’s how Justin McElroy, Municipal Affairs Reporter for CBC News Vancouver put it.

But I have also heard loud and clear that people want to hear my ideas.  They want to know what I will do, and how they will benefit.

So here are just a few:

  • We can’t wait six years to relieve pressure on our housing rental market (which is how long Kennedy Stewart’s plan will take) – we need relief, now. That’s why I am proposing to immediately allow two secondary suites in every detached home, of which there are over 40,000.  Even if only a relatively small percentage of people take advantage of this, it will still bring thousands of new units onto the market faster than any other proposal.  And you don’t have to live in a secondary suite to benefit from this, because the immediate increase in supply means rents should start to come down across the city.
  • Our families can’t find child care – and yet City Hall charges would-be new operators $42,600 to apply for an “air space parcel” – something they must do before starting a child care business. I believe that we need to empower our entrepreneurs to help solve our problems and provide the right incentives for the services we need.  When it comes to child care, we need far more, not less, so charging $42,600 for a simple bureaucratic application makes no sense.  I will waive this fee for new child care operators, and provide other incentives and simpler approvals.  I will also prioritize under-served areas of Vancouver, and include child care as the norm in all city-led developments.
  • Our small businesses are closing all over our city, and part of the reason is unfair property taxation. Currently, independent businesses can see their property taxes dramatically increase overnight, just because a new condo gets built down the street.  When this happens, businesses often end up closing and the store owners, employees, and entire neighbourhood are worse off as a result.  I will make small business taxes more consistent, predictable, and fair so that we can protect what makes our city so liveable and special.
  • Our Seniors are the people who made our city great, and they should have the right to age in the community they call home. Unfortunately, too many seniors are being forced from their homes through “demovictions” or other forcible displacements.  And nowhere is this as bad as Burnaby, where Kennedy Stewart sat idly by as MP for six years and watched it happen.  We can’t let this happen to our seniors in Vancouver.  This is why I will create a Displaced Tenant Policy to establish clear, consistent obligations for developers whose renovations or new construction displace existing tenants.
  • We have an obligation to protect our environment, but for too long the City has seemed only interested in fighting costly legal battles with other levels of Government, benefiting only the lawyers. My environmental plan calls for adding 200,000 more trees – right here in our City – for added shade, greenery, and beauty.  This will also reduce ambient air temperatures, help to clean our air and reduce noise pollution.  And we will continue the goal of making Vancouver the greenest city in the world while making room for new thinking on how to accomplish this.
  • We need leadership and bold action to deal with the multiple crises of homelessness, addictions, and mental health, but there is too much of a disconnect between what the politicians say at City Hall and what actually happens on the street. That is why I will open a satellite Mayor’s Office on the Downtown Eastside.  And I will commit to spending at least one full day a month on the Downtown Eastside.
  • Our citizens are having trouble making ends meet, and we have seen taxes go up and the City’s debt load rise… all the while without seeing a corresponding increase in service levels. Clearly, we can do better, which is why I will order a full, independent review of City finances to ensure tax dollars being spent responsibly and identify areas for improvement.  And I will review City policies and programs introduced in the past 10 years to evaluate whether they are making Vancouver more livable and affordable.

I have the privilege this election to be running with the most diverse and talented slate of candidates of any team in the race.  They’re super capable, incredibly bright, and all share a deep love of this city.

I know, in my heart, that things can get better in our city.

On Saturday, I humbly ask that you give my team and me a chance to make a difference.

Sincerely,

Ken Sim

Mayoral Candidate

for NPA Vancouver

A GREENER, HEALTHIER CITY

Our plan for a greener and more sustainable city.

From the visionary green agenda of the Clouds of Change report in 1990 to the present day, the NPA has been at the forefront of practical actions that make Vancouver healthier and more sustainable. We’ll continue that leadership with an ambitious agenda that delivers results, not just slogans.

A GREENER, HEALTHIER CITY

  1. More trees for added shade, greenery, and beauty.  This means planting an additional 200,000 trees in the City of Vancouver by 2030, which will reduce ambient air temperature, help to clean our air, and reduce noise pollution.
  2. Double the number of public water refilling stations.  This means fewer plastic bottles and more opportunities to refill reusable water bottles in our parks, squares, and city-owned public spaces.  The number of water facilities for dogs will also be doubled.
  3. Promote local cultivation of produce and gardening.  This means pursuing new partnerships for additional gardening and instruction opportunities on City-owned land and facilities.
  4. More opportunities for farmers markets.  New permitting opportunities around the city will provide improved access to fresh produce and helps support local farming and artisans.

A POLICY FRAMEWORK FOR LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY

Support the Greenest City Action Plan.  We support the goal of making Vancouver the greenest city in the world by 2020 while also recognizing that the Plan is a living document that must be open to new ideas and opportunities and flexible enough to address emerging challenges.

Support carbon reduction efforts.  This includes working with major regional emitters such as Port of Vancouver and YVR Airport to explore emissions reductions strategies.

Climate change adaptation strategy. Our climate is changing and the City of Vancouver needs to be prepared to adapt and mitigate the impacts on residents.  This means frequently updating the strategy to account for new data and predicted timelines of impacts.  This also means ensuring the City’s operational preparedness to address adverse weather conditions with additional road clearing and snow removal.

Take steps toward cleaner beaches and shoreline.  Develop an action plan to accelerate sewer separation, protecting our shoreline and ensure Vancouverites can swim in our ocean.

More places to charge.  This means encouraging the adoption of electric vehicle by partnering with the private sector to quadruple electric vehicle charging infrastructure over 4 years.

A FAMILY FRIENDLY VANCOUVER

Our plan for more affordable, licensed, and safe child care spaces.

The NPA Child Care Plan—A Family Friendly Vancouver—will create incentives to stakeholders, waive fees, and will leverage funding from the B.C. Provincial Child Care Plan. The NPA plan provides solutions to expedite permits and fast-track licensing requirements between different levels of government and regulating bodies.

The NPA plan provides solutions to expedite permits and fast-track licensing requirements between different levels of government and regulating bodies.

3 IMMEDIATE STEPS to make new child care spaces faster, easier, and less costly to build.

    Purpose-built child care space provides a valuable and urgently needed amenity to local communities.  The NPA will remove the barriers to building child care facilities and recognize the public benefit they provide.
      1. Waive the costly fees. This begins with eliminating the $42,600 fee charged by the City to approve an “air space parcel”.
      2. Provide incentives. Allow those interested in building child care space to be eligible for the incentives currently offered to rental-only projects (Rental 100).
      3. Put child care in the Fastlane. This means expediting Permits and Fast-tracking projects, especially for non-profit child care centres.  This lowers costs and makes spaces available more quickly.
  • OUR LONG TERM STRATEGY

    Fill the gaps.  Prioritize under served areas for city development and partnerships to ensure adequate child care centres in all 22 Vancouver neighbourhoods. 

    Include child care as the norm.  This means on city-led developments or rental housing or other projects built on city land, include child care facilities as the default. 

    Facilitate a single window process.  Develop partnerships with Vancouver Coastal Health and the Province of BC, with the City providing frontline service to streamline permits and licenses, and assist with accessing funding from other levels of government.

    Promote accessibility and connections. Encouraging intergenerational connections by locating child care facilities near seniors’ centres.  To make facilities more accessible, the placement of child care near transit will be encouraged.

    OUR COMMITMENT TO OLDER ADULTS

    Our plan to ensure Vancouver’s growing senior population is safe, active, and included in the social fabric of our City.

    With a growing, aging, and active population, Vancouver can be a national and global leader in quality of life for older adults – and that’s exactly what we want to achieve.

    Ken Sim and the NPA Team will:

    SUPPORT THE CONCEPT THAT EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO AGE IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITY

    • Protect Seniors from ‘Demovictions’ and forced renovations, by establishing a displaced tenant policy. People on a fixed income, including many seniors, are particularly at risk if demovictions occur. This means working with renter advocates and developers to establish clear, consistent obligations for developers whose renovations or new construction displace existing tenants (Note: the Displaced Tenant Policy was first announced in our Housing Plan)
    • Give seniors the option to stay in their community as they age, whether they choose to remain in their home, or move to a nearby residence. This means working with the provincial government, not-for-profits; and private sector partners to ensure appropriate housing is available at a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood level.
    • Fast-track housing developed by not-for-profits or in partnership with BC Housing that will benefit low-income Vancouverites, vulnerable seniors, and/or people with disabilities (Note: the (Note: Fast-tracking certain housing developments was first announced in our Housing Plan)

    ADDRESS SAFETY AND ACCESSIBILITY SHORTCOMINGS IN OUR FACILITIES AND BUILT ENVIRONMENT

    • As part of a comprehensive transportation and mobility review, ensure sidewalks and streetlights meet the needs of older adults, and others with limited mobility and falling risks
    • Consider the unique needs of older adults in the development of all housing policies, community centres, and other municipal facilities and infrastructure. This includes stairs/ramps, doors, bathrooms, etc.
    • Ensure that Vancouver’s homeless shelters meet the needs of vulnerable older adults, and that transitional housing opportunities are available to them as needed

    ENSURE APPROPRIATE SPACE AND FUNDING FOR SENIORS’ CENTRES

    • Support the creation of new seniors’ centres – such as the recently-completed Killarney Seniors Centre, and upgrades to existing facilities where needed, such as the South Granville Seniors Centre
    • Look for every opportunity to create spaces for seniors’ activities when constructing new rental accommodation on City-owned land
      (Note: constructing dedicated rental units on City-owned land is a core component of our Housing Plan)
    • Ensure that both community centres with seniors’ programs, and independent seniors’ centres, have the resources they need to create and facilitate opportunities for social interaction, as social isolation is one of the primary concerns of our senior population

    5 IMMEDIATE STEPS

    These are the actions that an NPA Mayor and Council will enact within the first 100 days of office:

    1. Allow two secondary suites in detached homes. For renters, this brings up to 40,000 new units within reach. For homeowners, this means new options to pay their mortgage.
    2. Fast-track housing for low-income Vancouverites, vulnerable seniors, and people with disabilities. This means that housing developed by not-for-profits or in partnership with BC Housing gets built faster.
    3. Reduce municipal taxes, fees, and charges for laneway homes and new secondary suites that house long-term renters. This makes it less expensive for homeowners to add rental suites and gives renters more options to choose from.
    4. Renew outstanding co-op rental leases. This provides residents with certainty and peace of mind.  It is also a starting point to pursue opportunities for additional co-op housing.
    5. Designate City-owned lands for constructing attainable rental accommodation maintaining municipal ownership of that land.

    5. Designate City-owned lands for constructing attainable rental accommodation maintaining municipal ownership of that land.

    5 STEPS TO FIX THE PROCESS

    We also need to fix the way that city hall works. 

    1. Stop the practice of city planning based on developer cash contributions. This means that city planning is driven by the needs of its residents, not development revenues.
    2. Break the permitting logjam and bring down the cost of new units for renters and buyers. This means speeding up the construction of a wide range of housing projects so that Vancouverites have more options when seeking a home.
    3. Establish a displaced tenant policy for those forced out by renovations or demolition. This means working with renter advocates and developers to establish clear, consistent obligations for developers whose renovations or new construction displace existing tenants.
    4. Stop one-off and sweetheart deals with developers. This means real local benefits so neighborhoods that accommodate additional density are rewarded with new and improved community facilities and public spaces. To do so, we will adopt consistent and transparent criteria for calculating and allocating Community Amenity Contributions. 
    5. Engage neighboring municipalities. This means working to align processes for development applications to be more consistent across the region. 

    OUR LONG TERM STRATEGY

    Develop a comprehensive City-Wide Plan with a unique plan for each neighbourhood.  This means moving away from spot rezonings.  It also requires real consultation with the public, stakeholder groups, and experts, and will be informed by best practices from the world’s most livable cities.  This will help to achieve a more appropriate mix of residential, commercial, and industrial zoning for under-utilized areas located near transit, including False Creek Flats.

    Focus on the missing middle with a housing stock diversity plan.  This means encouraging secondary suites, laneway homes, and innovative forms of land tenure, as well as zoning opportunities for attainable row houses, townhomes, and stacked townhomes.

    Press Ottawa to restore tax breaks that encourage investment in rental housing.  This means presenting a united front with the provincial government and stakeholders to insist that the federal government fulfills its promise on GST exemptions and considers a return to capital gains rollover.

    Review the Vancouver Building Bylaw and policies to reduce the cost of housing and respect consumer choice. 

    Work with the BC government to initiate a review of the provincial building code, in order to make housing construction less expensive and enable architectural innovation.

    Improving Student Outcomes and Support for Families and Teachers

    Our plan to empower students, teachers, support workers, families, and community partners to reach their full potential, together (the “School Plan”)

    5 Immediate Steps to Better Our Schools

    Educational Excellence

    Student achievement requires safe and inclusive facilities, and excellent teaching and support staff. Essential to this is the quality and diversity of programming within our schools.  NPA Trustees will:

    • Champion the expansion of the Reading Recovery literacy programs;
    • Work with staff and stakeholder representatives to establish and implement a District Mental Health Strategy;
    • Enhance supports for students dealing with substance use challenges; and
    • Work to further develop music programs, diverse language programs, multicultural home school support, and other services that meet the unique needs of students and families.

    Improving our Neighbourhood Schools

    Students and their families need a safe and engaging place to learn in their neighbourhood. NPA Trustees will:

    • Expedite capital construction and seismic upgrades to all neighbourhood schools, including:
      • Working with the city to fast-track building and development permits for school facilities; and
      • Championing the provincial government and community partners for capital resources;
    • Work with local technology sector partners to increase access to classroom technology tools and resources;
    • Ensure new playgrounds are accessible for a wide range of abilities, and improve accessibility of existing playgrounds, where possible; and
    • Advocate for the grandparenting of siblings in the event of any changes to school boundaries.

    Supporting Vulnerable Students

    • Re-affirm our commitment to SOGI 123, so that all students can feel safe and respected
    • Prioritize and fully-fund early identification, designation and personalized programming for learners with both special needs, and gifted needs
    • Improve supports for all other vulnerable students, including both English language learners and Indigenous students

    Accountability and Transparency

    Vancouver School Board Trustees are mandated by the School Act to present a balanced budget.  NPA Trustees will ensure:

    • Accountability and transparency as to how school funds are prioritized and allocated;
    • Good governance and policy short-falls of past Boards are not repeated; and
    • Funding is allocated and stewarded, wisely.

    Community Partnerships and Supplemental Support

    It is vital to the success of our learners and their families that the Vancouver School Board provide opportunities for before and after school care and enrichment programs in and outside of the classroom.  NPA Trustees will encourage and promote these efforts, by:

    • Establishing a district-wide, school-based revenue generation strategy to encourage local individuals and philanthropic organizations to support educational opportunities such as bursaries, food and emergency intervention programs, and music and arts programs;
    • Re-establish the Vancouver School Foundation; and
    • Strengthening partnerships with the City and Park Board to enhance community-use of school facilities, including providing space for seniors, childcare and other community groups.

    WHAT’S AT STAKE

    For ten years, Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver have been in charge of our City. And while they have made progress on some issues, such as making our City more environmentally friendly, on the big issues that matter – housing, homelessness, our core services – they have largely failed.

    Kennedy Stewart, claims to be an “Independent” candidate, but he is in fact the Vision candidate in all but name. He would continue the same failed ideology that got us into this mess. We can’t keep going like this.

    We know that things can get better in our city.

    On October 20th, we humbly ask that you give Ken Sim and the NPA Team a chance to make a difference.

    OUR PRIORITIES

    Housing
    We can’t wait six years to relieve pressure on our housing rental market (which is how long Kennedy Stewart’s plan will take) – we need relief, now. That’s why we will immediately allow two secondary suites in every detached home, bringing immediate supply onto the market and relieving pressure on the overall rental market. We also build dedicated rental buildings on City-owned land, fast-track housing for those who need it most, and clean up the development approval process.


    Small Business
    Our small businesses are closing all over our city, and part of the reason is unfair property taxation. Currently, independent businesses can see their property taxes dramatically increase overnight, just because a new condo gets built down the street. When this happens, businesses often end up closing and the store owners, employees, and entire neighbourhood are worse off as a result. We will make small business taxes more consistent, predictable, and fair so that we can protect what makes our city so liveable.


    Child Care
    Our families can’t find child care – and yet City Hall charges would-be new operators $42,600 to apply for an “air space parcel” – something they must do before starting a child care business. We need to empower our entrepreneurs to help solve our problems and provide the right incentives for the services we need. We will waive this fee for new child care operators, and provide other incentives and simpler approvals. We will also prioritize under-served areas of Vancouver, and include child care as the norm in all city-led developments.


    Seniors
    Our Seniors are the people who made our city great, and they should have the right to age in the community they call home. Unfortunately, too many seniors are being forced from their homes through “demovictions” or other forcible displacements. And nowhere is this as bad as Burnaby, where Kennedy Stewart sat idly by as MP for six years and watched it happened. We can’t let this happen to our seniors in Vancouver. This is why we will create a Displaced Tenant Policy to establish clear, consistent obligations for developers whose renovations or new construction displace existing tenants.

    WHAT’S AT STAKE

    Our city is at a tipping point. Vancouverites are frustrated by affordability challenges, by the decline of core services, and by the lack of accountability at City Hall.


    We know it doesn’t have to be this way. Vancouverites deserve an affordable, liveable, inclusive community – and that’s exactly what the NPA wants to achieve.


    The Non-Partisan Association is a group of like-minded Vancouverites who want a better city. We’re focused not on left-wing or right-wing ideology, but on delivering solutions that work.


    In the election this October, you have a clear choice. A future where Vancouverites have to leave the city they love – or a future where we can stay in Vancouver and build the city we all want. More of the same failed ideological politics – or a practical, results-focused, non-partisan approach that will restore common sense to City Hall.

    WHAT’S AT STAKE

    After 10 years of Vision Vancouver rule, our City is a mess. Vancouver is gripped by an affordability crisis that is threatening to destroy our city. Faced with rising rents and mortgage payments, out-of-reach home prices, combined with incomes that have flatlined and small businesses that are failing – many Vancouverites feel that they have no choice but to leave the city that they love. After all, who can see a future here for the next generation if things don’t change, and fast? Only Ken Sim and the NPA have the experience and ability to bring a practical, non-ideological and non-partisan approach that will restore sanity to City Hall and tackle the affordability crisis head-on.

    OUR PRIORITIES

    Ken Sim and the NPA Team have the experience and ability to deliver the change Vancouver needs. Our commitments to you will be achievable, affordable, and realistic. Stay tuned for our full platform in the coming weeks.

    Liveability

    Vancouverites are finding it more difficult to live and work in their own city. Our top priority is attainable housing options for Vancouverites to rent and buy – breaking the building permit logjam at City Hall, introducing smarter zoning with strong, meaningful public consultation, and working effectively with non-profits, the private sector, and other levels of government.

    Accountability

    Our city taxes have been increasing at a record pace, and that needs to stop. We’ll launch a full review of the City’s books and restore a focus on core services at City Hall. The NPA will get Vancouver on solid financial footing, and make sure your tax dollars are spent responsibly to deliver the services you rely on every day.

    Mobility

    Our transportation network needs to keep pace with the city’s growth and meet the needs of all Vancouverites. We’ll tackle congestion with a healthy balance between transit, cars, cycling, and walking.

    使市政府的工作更透明及负责

    重建公平及可信任的市政服务

    使市政府的工作更透明及负责

    重建公平及可信任的市政服务

    5个积极利于纳税人的政策

    1. 对市政府进行一个完全独立的财务审计,保证税收支出用得其所,并指出改善的地方。
    2. 回顾过去10年前政府推出的城市政策和计划,以评估他们能否使温哥华宜居,及更可负担。
    3. 控制市政府税率的加幅不能超过通货膨胀率,以减轻居民负担。
    4. 建立长远稳定的市政府减债计划。
    5. 联合市内各个政治党派,与省及联邦探讨共同对温哥华建设的支持与投资。

    使市政府更透明

    1. 市政府所有工作均需透明及公开,豁免权只是在必要时才允许使用。
    2. 将政治与公共服务分开,使城市工作人员能够在没有政治干预的情况下完成工作,从而创新,并为温哥华的挑战开发创造性的解决方案。
    3. 建立各政治组织的游说客的注册制度。
    4. 确保政府的公正廉洁。
    5. 通过独立委员会的建议确定未来对议员工资的任何增加。

    并确保我们选举的完整性

    1. 启动市政选举捐献审查。委托独立的第三方审查当前的选举财务和广告规则,包括匿名团体,目的是免使匿名广告影响温哥华选举。向BC省选举市政事务和住房部长提出建议报告。
    2. 创建隐私和信息工作组。确保在整个市政选举过程中保护个人隐私。

    为家庭和老年人的 提供安全,整洁的公园

    保持温哥华公园的整洁度,并长期投资于公园设施。

    为家庭和老年人的 提供安全,整洁的公园

    保持温哥华公园的整洁度,并长期投资于公园设施。

    4项积极措施清洁温哥华的公园

    1. 延长公园管理员工时计划。公园管理员通常在晚上8点以后下班,我们会延长时间。当居民晚间使用公园设施时会感到更安全,并帮助我们的一些弱势群体与他们所需的服务联系起来。
    2. 改善了公园的清洁度,垃圾箱更多,卫生队更频繁地收集垃圾箱。
    3. 制定针对弱势群体的应对计划,其中公园管理员可采取相对的支持,将弱势居民(包括患有无家可归,成瘾和/或心理健康的人)转介到他们所需的地方。倡导高级政府提供这些资源。
    4. 通过更好的标牌改善公园的可达性和安全性,加强照明。某些公园与学校共用的空间(如Crosstown和Strathcona),会有明确的告示指出这些是儿童安全的学校范围。

    投资在公园的设施计划

    1. 确认并保护公园董事会的独立性,并努力使每项增加的支出在年度预算之内,确保使用合理。维护和扩展我们的绿地。这将有助于我们更好地照顾我们的公共空间,吸引更多的游客来推动我们的经济,并改善共享空间的享受。
    2. 投资翻新温哥华的社区中心,游泳池和其他娱乐基础设施。
    3. 在现有的政策上,优先考虑额外的室外和室内游泳池,同时努力建造更安全,更清洁的海滩。
    4. Arbutus的步行及单车径(Arbutus Greenway)置于公园局管辖范围内,以便所有居民都可享受这一设施。
    5. 建立温哥华公园基金会,使私营部门或慈善团体能在财务上支持公园建设。

    SAFE, CLEAN PARKS FOR FAMILIES AND SENIORS

    Our plan to clean up Vancouver’s parks, and invest in the longterm health of our parks and recreation facilities.

    SAFE, CLEAN PARKS FOR FAMILIES AND SENIORS

    Our plan to clean up Vancouver’s parks, and invest in the longterm health of our parks and recreation facilities.

    4 IMMEDIATE STEPS to clean up Vancouver’s parks

    1. Extended hours of the Park Ranger program. Park Rangers are generally off duty after 8:00 p.m., and we would bring in extended hours. Vancouver’s Park Rangers help our citizens feel safe when using our parks and help connect some of our most vulnerable with the services they need.
    2. Improved cleanliness of parks with more litter bins and greater frequency of collection and park sweeps by sanitation teams.
    3. Establish a Response Plan for the most vulnerable, which will outline the steps that a Park Ranger can take to refer vulnerable residents, including people suffering from homelessness, addiction and/or mental health, to the support systems they require. Advocate to senior levels of government to provide these resources.
    4. Improve the accessibility and safety of our parks with better signage, and lighting in dark places. Where the parks are shared spaces with schools (such as Crosstown and Strathcona), clearly communicate with signage that these are safe school spaces for children.

    INVESTING IN THE LONG-TERM HEALTH of our parks and recreation facilities

    1. Confirm and protect the independence of the Park Board, and work toward a dedicated budget with annual increases that ensures the maintenance and expansion of our green spaces, and keeps user fees under control. This will help us take even better care of our public spaces, attracting more visitors who drive our economy, and improving enjoyment of shared spaces.
    2. Invest in rejuvenating Vancouver’s neighbourhood community centres, swimming pools, and other recreational infrastructure.
    3. Building on the VanSplash Aquatic Strategy, prioritize additional outdoor and indoor swimming pools while working toward safer, cleaner beaches.
    4. Place the Arbutus Greenway under Park Board jurisdiction so that this space can be enjoyed by all of our citizens to the full extent possible.
    5. Establish a Vancouver Parks Foundation, to enable philanthropic and private sector financial support for our parks and recreation facilities.

    BRINGING TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY BACK TO CITY HALL

    Our plan to restore trust and faith in city services and the local electoral process.

    BRINGING TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY BACK TO CITY HALL

    Our plan to restore trust and faith in city services and the local electoral process.

    5 IMMEDIATE STEPS to respect taxpayers

    1. Order a full, independent review of City finances to ensure
      tax dollars being spent responsibly and identify areas for
      improvement.
    2. Review City policies and programs introduced in the past
      10 years to evaluate whether they are making Vancouver
      more liveable and affordable.
    3. Relieve tax pressure with a target of capping increases in
      municipal taxes to no more than the rate of inflation.
    4. Restore long-term fiscal stability with a plan to reduce
      Vancouver’s debt.
    5. Create a multi-partisan Team Vancouver. Bring together
      Vancouver’s MPs and MLAs in a cross-partisan Team
      Vancouver that can secure our fair share of investment and
      support from other levels of government.

    RETURN TRANSPARENCY TO CITY HALL

    1. Make transparency and disclosure the default. Exemptions will be
      made only when necessary, rather than at every possible turn.
    2. Separate politics from the public service and empower City staff to
      do their jobs without political interference, so they can innovate,
      and develop creative solutions to Vancouver’s challenges.
    3. Create a registry for lobbyists, bringing Vancouver into compliance
      with best practices established at the Provincial and Federal levels.
    4. Improve protections for whistleblowers to ensure the integrity of
      our local government.
    5. Determine any future increases to Councillor salaries through
      recommendations from an independent committee.

    AND ENSURE THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTIONS

    1. Launch a Municipal election financing integrity review.
      Commission an independent third-party review of the current
      election finance and advertising rules including the role of
      anonymous groups, with the goal of taking anonymous advertising
      our of Vancouver politics. Deliver a report to Elections BC and
      Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing of recommendations.
    2. Create a Privacy and information taskforce. To ensure that
      personal privacy is protected throughout the municipal election
      process.

    建设强健的本地经济

    本计划为保障独立企业,并未温哥华市未来的经济发展做准备

    建设强健的本地经济

    本计划为保障独立企业,并未温哥华市未来的经济发展做准备

    保护独立企业的三项措施

    小型企业就像我们的邻居,是我们生活的一部分。当选100天内,Ken SIM及其NPA政府团队会制定帮助小企业的指导:

    1. 针对小企业会制定一套公平,可预计及稳定的税收制度。

    现时某些企业突然大幅增加,可能是基于同地区有新建筑以至其估值升高。

    1. 简化及加快新企业申请流程。
    2. 建立在小企业处于危机时的快速帮扶处理方案。

    当企业不幸遇上各种天灾时,市政府不应增加企业的各种压力。当企业遇到任何突发问题时,Ken SIM及市政府团队均会负责任地提供帮助。

    五项工作为温哥华经济发展做准备

    中大型企业需要特定的营商环境,使他们可以尽力发展,创造就业及吸引人材。

    1. 组建一个创新工作组以应对将来科技社会带来的快速转变,例如UBER,AIRBNB均对现有社会有很大影响,我们怎样把握它成为机会。
    2. 支持天然气继续作为温哥华煮食或供暖的主要能源。
    3. 市政大楼会率先引进及使用各种新科技,这表明本市支持科技公司,提供环境使他们发展。
    4. 协同大温地区各市长及议会商讨各个城市间的经济合作发展。各个城市应互补大家所需,已令整个大温地区共同繁荣。
    5. 对外宣传温哥华的历史及多元文化,借此建立及强化我们在国际上的贸易地位。在温哥华我们有种族的文化和关系,这可带领我们在国际上打开更多新市场。

    处理房屋可负担性五项措施

    当NPA市长及市政团队当选后,将在100天内推行的行动:

    1. 允许每间独立屋加至两个出租单位,对租户来看,市场马上多了40,000个单位可供选择;在业主方面,他有更多收入以还清贷款。
    2. 优先对低收入者房屋,长者屋及残疾人士住房有特快建屋的安排,这表示该些用途的房屋如是由非谋利团体或与省房屋厅共同合作的,将会优先处理。
    3. 市政府会减低对后巷屋,新的出租单位(长租约)的各种税项和收费。
    4. 续签某些已过租约期的合作房屋,这安排会使居民更能安居及计划将来。这亦是市政府追求增加合作房屋的第一步。
    5. 在市政府仍拥有地权的前提下,使用该些土地兴建出租房屋。

    CHRIS QIU School Board Candidate

    Chris Qiu has over 15 years of professional experience working as a Legal Analyst, Accountant, and Commercial Insurance Claims Assistant in one of the world’s largest commercial insurance brokerage firms. She is vice-chair of Sir Winston Churchill PAC and a dedicated mother of three children – one at high school and two at elementary school.

    Chris has a passion to serve the community and has done so with various charity organizations: as an enthusiastic volunteer, and then scout leader, at Scouts Canada; as a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society (since 2011); and as an Area Captain for the Cancer Society’s door-to-door fundraising campaign in 2018.

    Chris holds a Bachelor of Laws Degree from Tsinghua University (Beijing) and a Master of Laws Degree from McGill University. She lives in the Marpole community with her husband and three children and believes children deserve the best education and educational opportunities possible.

    Chris’s priorities as a VSB school trustee include:

    • Strengthening education by expanding math, language, art, and Reading Recovery literacy programs.
    • Providing safe school campuses by expediting capital construction and seismic safety upgrades.
    • Providing early identification of, and continued assistance to, learners with special needs.
    • Providing community support for before and after-school care and enrichment programs.
    • Ensuring good governance and a balanced budget to ensure that education funding is allocated and spent wisely. 

    BUILDING A STRONG LOCAL ECONOMY

    Our plan to protect independent businesses and prepare Vancouver for the economy of tomorrow.

    BUILDING A STRONG LOCAL ECONOMY

    Our plan to protect independent businesses and prepare Vancouver for the economy of tomorrow.

    3 IMMEDIATE STEPS to protect independent businesses

    Small businesses are the heart and soul of our neighborhoods.  Within the first 100 days in office, an NPA Mayor and Council will launch a Small Business Task Force mandated to:

    1. Make small business taxes more consistent, predictable, and fair. Currently, independent businesses can see their property taxes dramatically increase just because new condos get built down the street.
    2. Simplify and accelerate new business processes. This reduces the barriers to starting and growing the independent businesses that make Vancouver neighborhoods vibrant and unique.
    3. Develop a fast-track process for businesses in duress. A business that suffers from a flood or fire should not face additional challenges from city hall.  Businesses faced with extraordinary events can rely on Ken Sim as mayor and the NPA to be responsive and helpful.

    5 STEPS TO PREPARE VANCOUVER for the economy of tomorrow

    Medium and larger businesses need an environment where they can thrive, create jobs, and attract great talent.

    1. Establish a Disruption Working Group to prepare Vancouver to respond to rapid technological changes and accompanying unconventional service delivery models—Uber, AirBnb, etc. This means engaging the private sector and community organizations to identify challenges, solutions, and new opportunities related to rapidly emerging technologies.
    2. Ensure natural gas continues to be a cooking and heating option in Vancouver. This means opposing direct efforts or those hidden in the building code that restrict Vancouver’s restaurants, culinary community, and those in need of an inexpensive heating from accessing natural gas.
    3. Make Vancouver city hall an early adopter and incubator of promising new technologies. This means working with the technology sector to foster conditions that support the growth and new opportunities needed to keep promising tech companies from relocating to the US.
    4. Engage Metro Vancouver Mayors and Councils to collaborate on regional economic development. This means instead of competing with our neighbours for investments that provide regional benefits, work together to make the entire region better off.
    5. Leverage Vancouver’s heritage and cultural diversity to build and strengthen trade relationships. In Vancouver, this means recognizing and celebrating neighbourhoods that link us to other parts of the globe.  Internationally, this means drawing on the vast expertise of our cultural communities to strengthen international partnerships and open new doors.

    5 IMMEDIATE STEPS

    These are the actions that an NPA Mayor and Council will enact within the first 100 days of office:

    1. Allow two secondary suites in detached homes. For renters, this brings up to 40,000 new units within reach. For homeowners, this means new options to pay their mortgage.
    2. Fast-track housing for low-income Vancouverites, vulnerable seniors, and people with disabilities. This means that housing developed by not-for-profits or in partnership with BC Housing gets built faster.
    3. Reduce municipal taxes, fees, and charges for laneway homes and new secondary suites that house long-term renters. This makes it less expensive for homeowners to add rental suites and gives renters more options to choose from.
    4. Renew outstanding co-op rental leases. This provides residents with certainty and peace of mind.  It is also a starting point to pursue opportunities for additional co-op housing.
    5. Designate City-owned lands for constructing attainable rental accommodation maintaining municipal ownership of that land.

    5. Designate City-owned lands for constructing attainable rental accommodation maintaining municipal ownership of that land.

    5 STEPS TO FIX THE PROCESS

    We also need to fix the way that city hall works. 

    1. Stop the practice of city planning based on developer cash contributions. This means that city planning is driven by the needs of its residents, not development revenues.
    2. Break the permitting logjam and bring down the cost of new units for renters and buyers. This means speeding up the construction of a wide range of housing projects so that Vancouverites have more options when seeking a home.
    3. Establish a displaced tenant policy for those forced out by renovations or demolition. This means working with renter advocates and developers to establish clear, consistent obligations for developers whose renovations or new construction displace existing tenants.
    4. Stop one-off and sweetheart deals with developers. This means real local benefits so neighborhoods that accommodate additional density are rewarded with new and improved community facilities and public spaces. To do so, we will adopt consistent and transparent criteria for calculating and allocating Community Amenity Contributions. 
    5. Engage neighboring municipalities. This means working to align processes for development applications to be more consistent across the region. 

    OUR LONG TERM STRATEGY

    Develop a comprehensive City-Wide Plan with a unique plan for each neighbourhood.  This means moving away from spot rezonings.  It also requires real consultation with the public, stakeholder groups, and experts, and will be informed by best practices from the world’s most livable cities.  This will help to achieve a more appropriate mix of residential, commercial, and industrial zoning for under-utilized areas located near transit, including False Creek Flats.

    Focus on the missing middle with a housing stock diversity plan.  This means encouraging secondary suites, laneway homes, and innovative forms of land tenure, as well as zoning opportunities for attainable row houses, townhomes, and stacked townhomes.

    Press Ottawa to restore tax breaks that encourage investment in rental housing.  This means presenting a united front with the provincial government and stakeholders to insist that the federal government fulfills its promise on GST exemptions and considers a return to capital gains rollover.

    Review the Vancouver Building Bylaw and policies to reduce the cost of housing and respect consumer choice. 

    Work with the BC government to initiate a review of the provincial building code, in order to make housing construction less expensive and enable architectural innovation.

    WHAT’S AT STAKE

    Our city is at a tipping point. Vancouverites are frustrated by affordability challenges, by the decline of core services, and by the lack of accountability at City Hall.


    We know it doesn’t have to be this way. Vancouverites deserve an affordable, liveable, inclusive community – and that’s exactly what the NPA wants to achieve.


    The Non-Partisan Association is a group of like-minded Vancouverites who want a better city. We’re focused not on left-wing or right-wing ideology, but on delivering solutions that work.


    In the election this October, you have a clear choice. A future where Vancouverites have to leave the city they love – or a future where we can stay in Vancouver and build the city we all want. More of the same failed ideological politics – or a practical, results-focused, non-partisan approach that will restore common sense to City Hall.

    WHAT’S AT STAKE

    After 10 years of Vision Vancouver rule, our City is a mess. Vancouver is gripped by an affordability crisis that is threatening to destroy our city. Faced with rising rents and mortgage payments, out-of-reach home prices, combined with incomes that have flatlined and small businesses that are failing – many Vancouverites feel that they have no choice but to leave the city that they love. After all, who can see a future here for the next generation if things don’t change, and fast? Only Ken Sim and the NPA have the experience and ability to bring a practical, non-ideological and non-partisan approach that will restore sanity to City Hall and tackle the affordability crisis head-on.
